Learning to Hit Snooze at Waterloo Place, Edinburgh + Giveaway

What is it that really helps you to get a good night’s sleep? There are so many studies on this subject, but the studies all seem to say something different. What works for one person may not work for another, but the guys at Apex Hotels are pretty confident that they’ve found a winning formula. This October I travelled to Edinburgh with my boyfriend Scott to take part in Apex Hotel’s #HitSnooze campaign. It was my job to test out their formula for a great nights’ sleep, so we checked in to the stylish Apex Waterloo Place for a hotel lock-in of epic proportions. This post is also a giveaway, so be sure to leave a comment on this post to WIN a 1-night stay for 2 including breakfast at the Apex Hotel of your choice.

Our #HitSnooze HQ

After a full day of exploring Edinburgh, it was time to spend our first night in the city at Apex Waterloo Place. Earlier that day we checked into the hotel and got a first glimpse of our beautiful Duplex Suite. With a dining area, study, lounge area and top floor bedroom, it felt so much more homely than your average hotel room. The king size bed was luxurious, plush and dressed in the softest linen. I am so picky when it comes to hotel beds but this one ticked all my boxes. If I was going to get a good night’s sleep anywhere, it had to be here.

The Sleep Kit

Waiting for us in the room was a beautiful sleep kit with little extras to help get a good night’s sleep. This was a one-off kit they had put together just for me, which made me realise the level of attention that goes on at Apex Waterloo Place. The kit included some luxurious miniature toiletries an adjustable eye mask and some soothing chamomile tea (caffeine free and perfect to sip before bedtime). The kit also came with a list of top tips to a great night’s sleep by Lisa Artis at The Sleep Council. The surprise sleep kit was so thoughtful and it really added to the sleep-focused experience.


An Evening Spa Session 

On my first night in a new city I usually can’t wait to get out and hit a local restaurant and some bars. It felt strange to be staying in the hotel all night, but not having to get ready and decide where to go definitely helped me to relax. My evening began with a swim in the hotel pool, followed by a back, neck and shoulder hot stone massage at PURE Spa & Beauty.

Usually after a massage you need to pick yourself up and continue with your day, but having this treatment in the evening allowed me to stay in my hazy state of relaxation. Apex Waterloo Place is one of the few luxury hotels in Edinburgh that is home to a spa, complete with indoor pool, steam room, sauna and treatment rooms.

A Light Supper at Elliot’s

As it was a ‘lock-in’, we ordered from the fixed-price menu at Elliot’s (Apex Waterloo Place’s signature restaurant). I opted for Serrano wrapped Hake, which was light but incredibly tasty. The waiters were both friendly and professional and really set the bar in terms of service at Apex Waterloo Place.

Switching off Technology

I wanted to share my experience on social media, so I had been taking photos, tweeting and posting Instagram stories throughout the whole day. It’s part of my job, but I knew that being wired to my technology wouldn’t help when it came to drifting off to sleep. Scott and I followed the tips in my sleep kit and made a conscious decision to ‘switch off all technology 1 hour before bed’. With phones away and the TV off, we shared a bubble bath in the huge freestanding tub. It was bliss!

The Morning After  

I woke up at around 9am, which definitely felt like a bit of a lie-in for me. We snoozed until about 9.30am to make the most of the gorgeous king size bed. It felt lazy but so nice at the same time! We started our second day with a hearty Eggs Benedict breakfast and wonderfully friendly service at Elliot’s.

The Verdict

I slept through the whole night without any disturbance and definitely think the sleep I got was deep, quality sleep. I definitely think that the ‘lock-in’ ritual had contributing factors that helped me to sleep well, including the evening massage, the bubble bath, the technology cut-off and the king size bed. The whole experience at Apex Waterloo Place was an indulgent treat, but still included small changes that I can maintain at home.

    I’d love to stay at the Apex City of London. I’d love to visit The Tower of London and pick up a sightseeing cruise with my hubby along the Thames.

  8. 13th November 2017 / 6:11 pm

    I am planning a budget trip to London this year. I am nervous about staying in a hostel. But that is what i need to do to keep the budget! This post have encouraged me to try it, all the arrangements looks cool like food, tourism places and the décor.

    Your stay in Edinburgh looks the !! Loved the review!

    They all look so fabulous! But I’d have to pick Bath … It’s been on the hit list for a while, city looks beautiful & the Hotel would be a total treat for my hubby & I . We’re happily enjoying the simple things in life & new experiences … working our way around the UK as saving for a so no big trips abroad for a while! Fingers crossed Xxx

  10. 12th November 2017 / 6:24 pm

  11. 12th November 2017 / 12:57 pm

    As much as I absolutely love Edinburgh (one of my fave UK cities so far), I’d have to pick to stay in the Apex Bath hotel! Bath has been on my travel wishlist for soooo long but hotels are always so pricey! Sounds like you had a great trip Jess! 🙂

    I would love to win a night in London with my hubby. We could have afternoon tea, take in show in the West End and then no worrying about rushing back for the train and hoping it hasn’t been cancelled (again!)

  14. 12th November 2017 / 10:05 am

    I think that I would visit the Edingbrugh or London one and id take my gorgeous fiance. We have both been to Edingbrugh and London seperatly and keep saying we will have a trip to these places together, due to us both having busy teacher lifestyles, often with different holidays time away together is rare at the moment. Something with the oppurtunity for lots of relaxation and quality time together would be perfect. I think the key to a good night sleep is to de stress beforehand and nice cup of herbal tea before bed.

It would really make our Christmas to win this night away and spend some quality time together. Amazing post too x

    This looks gorgeous – those eggs!!

    I’d love to visit the Glasgow hotel because I’ve been to Edinburgh so many times and people keep telling me I’d love Glasgow but not got round to it. I had a lot of messages after my Edinburgh blog asking if I’d been to Glasgow! So feel like I really have to get on with booking it to see what it has to offer!

    Reading your blog post had me daydreaming (only for 5 minutes!) about life pre-baby. Sleep ins, uninterrupted sleep, a HOT cup of tea, and some much needed R&R and one to own time with my husband. Don’t get me wrong, I love love my 9 month old to the moon and back, but a night away is good for the soul, for the mind… and for the love hormone 🙂
    I’m also pregnant with my second (eek!) and so this post just sounds like heaven in a nutshell to me and I’d love the opportunity to visit the Alex Hotel in Bath for a date night in massive comfort and luxury.
    Here’s hoping..!

    I would choose Bath, it’s a hard choice because all the locations are fantastically rich and varied as far as travelling and sightseeing go.

    Bath is the nearest to my home town but I can never get enough of it and I’ve only seen a little of it.

    The rich variety of art, architecture, museums, eateries, markets and shopping could keep me occupied for years.

    The history is engrossing and when you have had enough walking, talking and looking there is always the roof top spa to go and enjoy and get an altogether different view of the city.

    A night in a Bath is always a treat for me.

    I’d love to stay in Bath. I used to visit the area regularly when I lived in the Westcountry, but have not been back for years. It would be amazing to go and do all the touristy things I took for granted when it was on my doorstep. The Roman Baths, everything Jane Austin, a row on the river, maybe even a round of golf overlooking Victoria Park!

  103. 30th October 2017 / 2:39 pm

    What a great competition! I’d love to take my boyfriend for a night in Edinburgh. He’s never been further North of Northumberland (say what?!) and I’d love to take him to Scotland. I’m 1/4 Scottish so this is an outrage that I have entertained for far too long.

    APEX TEMPLE COURT HOTEL as we will be able to visit relatives near there.

  105. 30th October 2017 / 1:37 pm

    First of all lady – your pictures in this post are AMAZING (you look so radiant and beautiful!), secondly what an incredible giveaway! The hotel looks stunning, I think I’d have to go for Glasgow as I’ve never been but always wanted to, although I do love a good overnight stay in London (Edinburgh and Bath are also two favourites of mine, haha too many good choices!).

    Apex City of Bath Hotel- I’ve never been to Bath and would love to visit!

  108. 30th October 2017 / 11:07 am

    Bath would be a dream stay for us as we both love architecture and we have never seen Bath – its so historic and quaint! we like small towns and explore them on foot so this would be a perfect opportunity for us to learn about the city and see all its beauty

    I would love to stay at the Apex Temple Court Hotel, it looks amazing and it’s just off Fleet Street, I know nothing about the area apart from it being on the Monopoly board! I rarely get into London anymore since the kids were born so I would love to visit again now they are older

  119. julie booth
    29th October 2017 / 9:55 pm

    I would love a stay in the Apex Temple Court London as both my children live and work in London and going up for the day takes too much time and is too stressful. I would love to make a weekend of it so that as well as meeting my children for dinner (in the wonderful hotel restaurant) we could spend some quality time together visiting the Tate Modern, the British Museum, and as my daughter is a member of the Royal Academy we could see an exhibition there too. Obviously with an extra day, we could fit in some girly shopping whilst the lads do the bookshops

  120. Sarah Morris
    29th October 2017 / 9:54 pm

    I would choose Apex London Wall, it would be close enough to all the sights but also if it were at the weekend, it would be nice and quiet so I could wander around the financial district when its all ‘shut for business’ and the feel is totally different to a week day.

    I’d love ❤️ The Apex Waterloo as Edinburgh is our happy place, we visit twice a year and discover something new every time we go, our daughter has grown up exploring Edinburgh and we’ve experienced aged appropriate experiences, she’s 15 now and it’s all about luxury, spa and shopping but we always squeeze in a museum or two.
    We are yet to find our perfect hotel that we want to return to again and again I would love to stay here as it’s location is perfect, it’s modern and chic and I think it’s got everything we’ve ever wanted in a Edinburgh hotel. My friend stayed recently and said it’s the best hotel breakfast they’ve ever had #loveeggsbenedict

    What an interesting post! And such an exciting prize. Bath is one UNESCO World Heritage site I still have to discover so it would have to be that hotel which I would choose!

    APEX TEMPLE COURT HOTEL, would be wonderful, for an incredible date night with my husband, and we could visit his family nearby all at the same time, beautiful hotel many thanks…..

    What a fantastic post! It looks like an incredible place to rest. If I were to win, I’d love to stay at the Apex Hotel in Dundee. I’m an outdoorsy soul, so I would plan a few days of hiking and wild camping beforehand, then have a night in the Apex in Dundee as a reward. (Treating myself to a bit of spa time too for those aches muscles!)

    I’d love to stay at the Apex Waterloo Place in Edinburgh. Despite living in Glasgow, I’ve never actually explored Edinburgh (just climbed up Arthur’s Seat). So a stay at the Apex would be a great base (and excuse) for my boyfriend and I to be tourists for a day and fully immerse ourselves in what the city has to offer.

    I’d either go back to the grass market as we had an amazing time or go to bath as the newest addition looks lovely

  230. 29th October 2017 / 4:18 am

    This hotel sounds amazing and looked amazing in your instastories. My partner & I have been travelling Asia for 9 months in VERY budget places but are returning to England in a couple of weeks. When we’re back we plan on travelling around the UK more so it would be a great start to stay in such a luxury place. London, Bath & Edinburgh are all on the list so it’s hard to choose aha!

    I’d choose the Apex Temple Court Hotel in London because it is so central and its Chambers restaurant looks very good.

  232. 28th October 2017 / 5:49 pm

    Looks liike a lovely hotel! I would love to stay in the Apex Hotel in Bath, I’ve never been before and would love to explore the city!

    I’d love to spend a night in the Apex in Bath with my boyfriend! I went to uni in that beautiful spa town and always love going back but rarely get a chance. It would be wonderful if I could show my boyfriend how magical Bath is during Christmas time, just in time for our anniversary.

    I would love to win a night at Apex Waterloo Place in Edinburgh! My boyfriend and I met in Edinburgh and it’s become the special city of where we fell in love. We have been doing international long distance for a year and a half, and it would be incredible reconnect on one of our visits in the city that we love and that brought us together.

    Edinburgh or Bath, they’re two places on the list of places I’d LOVE to visit in the UK. Bath’s architecture and aesthetic completely captures my heart and then there is so many things and places I’d love it visit in Edinburgh, like museums and the castle. These hotels also look beautiful. x

    Hi Jess,

    Love this post and your beautiful photos! I would love to win a night’s stay in the London Apex Hotel as it is coming up for me and boyfriend’s anniversary in December and I would love to treat him to a well deserved night away. We’ve never been to London together and I love visiting this city – especially as it’s coming up to Christmas time!

    Thank you,
    Fennie ☺️ x

  241. 28th October 2017 / 12:17 pm

    The stay looked so great and the food looked unreal. I’d love to stay in the Dundee hotel as I haven’t actually been to Scotland and would really love to visit!

    I would absolutely love to visit the apex hotel in Edinburgh. Me and my boyfriend have both wanted to visit Edinburgh for forever and have both just begun busy jobs in London- a trip to Edinburgh would definitely help us get away from the London hustle and bustle and to relax! Love the post and reading the blog! Lucy X

    I’d love a stay at the apex Edinburgh please!! Have stayed there years ago when me and they boyfriend first got together as a few days away. I’d love to relive it. We got one of the rubber ducks they give away and sure it needs a friend now.

    Hi Jess,

    I’d choose BATH! As a keen traveller, explorer and history buff, what’s not to love about stepping back in time and visiting the home of Roman Deity Sulis Minerva, to the legendary thermal baths to keep my winter body nice and warm! Those Romans are pretty impressive so I’m keen to delve into their history at Bath!

    After visiting Florence this summer and walking across Ponte Vecchio with all its dainty shops & history, I’m playing ‘Bridge bingo’ and I have to visit Pulteney Bridge to tick it off my list as another incredibly designed bridge! Not only is it listed as a Grade 1 lists building itself, and has shops along the walkway, it’s survived the onslaught of German bombing in WW2 – no mean feat!

    What’s even more attractive than the rich historical legacy Bath has left on the world is how dazzling its supposed to be at winter! Christmas markets, mulled wine and exploring the city, taking in its architecture and personality! With a lovely trip to Bath and staying at Apex Hotels, who knows, I could folllow in the footsteps of William Herschel and make another astronomical discovery like he did in Bath by gazing up at the winter sky at the Herschel Museum of astronomy!

    I’d looooove to stay at the Aped in in Edinburgh, there’s something really quite magical about the castle and that view from Arthur’s Seat. An apex stay would be an absolute dream and icing on the cake

    This is really interesting, as someone who has trouble sleeping, I find this really helpful. I would have to choose Edinburgh as it’s always been somewhere I’d love to go but haven’t had the chance. Also your photos look incredible!

    I would love to go to Edinburgh because it is such a beautiful city that I’ve always wanted to visit. I’d love to see the architecture and rich culture of Edinburgh from a fantastic base!

  250. 28th October 2017 / 9:11 am

    I loved Apex hotels! I stayed in Temple Court at the start of the year with my mum and we had the most amazing girls weekend! I would love to treat her to another weekend away and she’s was born in Dundee, so I’d pick the Dundee location so we could revisit her childhood roots, visit family and do some Christmas shopping! Heaven! Fingers crossed!

    I would choose Bath, because I love this city at Christmas time, and a night in the Bath Apex hotel would be perfect

  262. 27th October 2017 / 8:40 pm

    London because…and wait for this…my boyfriend has never been to London!

  263. Stephanie Rogers
    27th October 2017 / 7:59 pm

    I would go for Edinburgh as your photos are amazing, and it would help us as we are relocating there in early December without a place to live yet So a few nights accomodation would be very handy!

  264. 27th October 2017 / 7:08 pm

    I’d love a chance to stay in the London Apex hotel to celebrate a very special anniversary coming up in November. What a lovely opportunity

  265. 27th October 2017 / 6:48 pm

    I’d love to stay in the London Apex as I find it so hard to switch off (digitally and mentally) and more than anything, I ADORE a bath, and my flat doesn’t have one. Oh how I dream of reading a book in a hot bath again.

  266. 27th October 2017 / 6:36 pm

    I’d choose Bath because it’s such a beautiful place to visit.

  267. 27th October 2017 / 5:37 pm

    I have to say, Edinburgh’s been on the hit list since forever, so winning a stay there might just get my butt in gear to ACTUALLY go there! P.S that hake looks DREAMY.

  268. 27th October 2017 / 3:54 pm

    A difficult decision but Edinburgh seems perfect for some us time which we struggle to find.
